What if tomorrow we could… Imagine, design and create a sustainable future
At Egis, employees are committed to supporting environmental, energy, digial and regional transition to help shape the world of tomorrow. We use our ability to innovate and to ingeniously turn ideas into concrete, operational and – above all – useful solutions to help benefit customers all over the world.
Our projects lead us to work in many fields that contribute to meeting the great challenges facing the planet today, such as transport, building, water, environment and energy, as well as urban development and mobility. We draw upon a wide range of professions and activities, from the design to the operation of infrastructures, to consulting, “turnkey” services, and project assembly
Our goals today, and we have everything going for us, is to be recognised as an accelerator of environmental and energy transition and among the key global players who truly count in the field of engineering in these areas. For this, we rely on the multidisciplinary and complementary nature of our business activities, our commitment to sustainable development, our international expansion and the women and men who work in our group. In order to succeed, we must constantly adapt our human resources, which is why we are promoting mobility, developing our employees’ careers, and improving cross-functional networks to work better together in complete transparency and confidence. We have also intensified our international culture and fostered a sense of pride, both in belonging to the Group and of its technical and social achievements.
Goals that translate into action
Since 2011, Egis has chosen to commit to the United Nations Global Compact
The Global Compact is a UN initiative that was launched in the year 2000. It encourages businesses worldwide to adopt a more socially responsible attitude. Members undertake to actively implement and promote simple principles relating to human rights, international labour standards, the environment and the fight against corruption. Since November 2011, Egis has committed to bringing its development strategy and operations in line with the ten principles of the Global Compact. Each year, Egis reports on the actions taken and progress made.Find out more Go to the Global Compact website
In 2012, publication of a sustainable development charter
Structured around a triple A approach (Anticipating, Assisting and Associating), this charter has been co-constructed with a panel of internal and external stakeholder representatives. It meets the Group’s three core values: to be a responsible, human and creative company.
Its 12 principles, based on the three priorities of Anticipating, Assisting and Associating, are each broken down into operational guidelines that detail the progress actions carried out and associated indicators (some indicators are under development).
In 2017, signature of the Shift Project’s “Decarbonize Europe Manifesto”
Egis is a signatory of the Shift Project’s manifesto, a call for action to prevent the Paris agreement going unheeded. Made up of nine concrete and quantified proposals, the manifesto covers sectors as varied as transport and energy sources, industries in which Egis has a wealth of expertise. Find out more about the manifesto.
In 2018, Egis is committed to climate
Egis says fighting climate change is a top priority. To make this commitment a reality, Egis has focused two CSR key goals directly linked to the Paris Climate Agreement:
1 – Propose an engineering and exploitation offer to respond to climate change issues
2 – Control its own carbon footprint
1 – Regarding the service offer, in 2018, the Group launched a “Pathways 1.5°C” approach to gradually strengthen its offer of solutions to fight climate change:
- Low carbon solutions
- Solutions improving resilience to climate change
- Solutions to sequester or absorbe CO2
A collection of posters illustrating this offer is currently under way.
2 – Regarding its own carbon footprint (carbon footprint of its operation), Egis has launched an action plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 prioritizing actions where its footprint is most important:
- On employees ‘s travel (77% of our carbon footprint1)
- On its building energy consumption, including the consumption of computer data (20% of our carbon footprint1)
- On its waste (3% of our carbon footprint1)
